One of the easiest breakfasts and snacks to make at home are granola bars. Here are the steps on how to make them.

Tips for making Healthy Raspberry Granola Bars
- For gluten free: make sure you’re using 1-1 baking gluten free flour. I like Bob’s Red Mill.
- For gluten free: use gluten free oats.
- Use your favorite fruit preserves or jam. Good options are strawberry and blueberry preserves from Bonne Maman.
- You can substitute walnuts for your preferred nuts, such as pecans.
- Use a chef’s knife to cut the bars into squares. Clean the knife between each pass for a cleaner cut.
